economy. we have differences in our tariffs. that causes us to borrow money. the light borrowing against the store. in host: i heard tariffs in those comments. is there a trade policy and are we playing on a level playing field? maybe you can pick up that point. >guest: one of the big issues in terms of trade policy is how the u.s. responds and crafts its relationship with china. as of last year, the senate passed a tough bill to clamp down on the chinese currency manipulation. china would not call of manipulation, obviously. the bill was in the house but it is opposed by the obama administration. they don't want to hurt their relationship with china and house republicans have no intention of bringing this up. on the other hand, mitt romney has said he will declare china a currency manipulator on the first day of his presidency. it is on clearview will follow through with that because there are real geopolitical consequences to that. that is something we are seeing in the campaign. host: back to the farm bill -- if there were an emergency measure, how would the politics of that play out?

to tell us what their plans are and they refuse to tell it. politics as usual. bill: you saw the poll there, about 72%. what do you make of that number? >> when you see 72% that is a bipartisan part of this country. this is a country understands small businesses create jobs. when the president wants to raise taxes he hurts small business. most of them run as an s corp. a bipartisan joint committee and went through and studied it. more than a million small businesses will have their taxes increased. small business creates more jobs than any large corporation. that's why we're hurting today. bill: you heard ben bernanke on the hill this week in a couple different hearings, one on the house side, one on the senate side. his message was do no harm. he cast concerned about that. what do you think of that comment? >> that comment was very telling, number one thing hurting american job growth is uncertainty and policies coming out of the white house. think for a moment when the democrats came in and democrats controlled all. that the stimulus would mean that unemployment would never go above

. >> thank you, you too. and also, thanks to all of you at home for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago this week, presidential candidate senator barack obama was wrapping up a worldwide tour through europe and the middle east. designed to amp up his foreign policy credentials. here's what that looked like. as many as 200,000 people crowded their way into berlin's tear garden park to hear senator obama's vision for the world in july of 2008 and to cheer. and cheer, and cheer some more. >> the greatest danger of all is to allow nuance to divide us from one another, the walls between old allies on either side of the atlantic cannot stand. the walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. the walls between races and tribes, natives and immigrants, christians and muslims and jews cannot stand. these now are the walls we must tear down. >> senator obama was greeted abroad like a political rock star. and not just by his tens of thousands of adoring fans. as frank rich put it at the time, senator obama was treated like a, quote, president in waiting
not credible or incredible were offended by the language of using god's plan and offended by the fact that he said he didn't regret, initially said that he did not regret his actions in what he did that evening. >> sunny, you mentioned that and he clarified the comments about whether or not he had regrets, and i want you to listen to what he said and the reaction from one of the attorneys of the martin family. >> i'd like to readdress your question when you asked if i would have done anything differently. when you asked that, i thought you were referring to if i would not have talked to the police, if i would have maybe got an attorney or maybe i wouldn't have taken the cbsa and that i stand by, i would not have done anything differently, but i do wish that there was something, anything i could have done that wouldn't have put me in the position where i had to take his life. >> he made a rush to judgment to label trayvon as criminal and suspicious. he got out of the car. and he put trayvon in the position. trayvon went to the grave not knowing who the strange man was who confronted him. >> an

loved him so bad in berlin. he also visited iraq, where he met with the prime minister and top u.s. military commanders in baghdad. and he went to afghanistan where he met with american nato troops and with afghan president karzai, and called for more troops, more focus on the war in afghanistan. for those of you keeping track at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut
in the first price. but you know what? mcconnell explains that whole thing to us, too. in january 2011, he gave an interview to the atlantic in which he said we worked very hard to keep our fingerprints off these proposals because we thought that the only way the american people would know a great debate was going on was if the measures were not bipartisan. you know what? mcconnell was correct. i think that's one of the most profound things anyone has said about politics. what he understood is what makes a bill bipartisan is not the ideas in it or the spirit in which it is offered. it's whether any legislatures from the other party sign on. if they do, by definition, the bill is partisan. so by keeping his members off thedemocrats' major bills, he made each and every one of those pieces of legislation into a partisan bill and destroyed the president's hope for image as a bipartisan compromiser. this week on fox news, mcconnell gave another remarkably honest interview. they have been saying repeal and replace, repeal and replace, but they haven't come together behind anything that would replace
to discuss with you today. somebody had told us in the 1950's or 1960's that a black citizen would serve as the 44th president of the united states, we would have been proud and many would have been surprised. we might have assumed the presidency would be the last door of opportunity to be opened. before that came to pass every other barrier in the path to equal opportunity wycherley have to have come now. it has not happen quite that way. many barriers remain. in some ways the challenges are more complicated than before. across america and within your own ranks, there is serious debate about the way forward. if equal opportunity were it and accomplished fact, then a bad economy would be equal for everyone. instead is worse for african- americans and almost every way. in june while the overall unemployment rate remained stuck at 8.2%, the unemployment rate for african-americans actually went up from 13% to 14.4%. americans of every backgrounder asking when the economy will finally recover. you in particular are entitled to an answer. if equal opportunity -- [applause] if equal opportunit
about the word that he used that set this off. >> my experience as an olympic organizer is there are always a few very small things that end up going not quite right in the first day or so, those get ironed out. and then when the games themselves begin, and athletes take over, all of the mistakes of the organizing committee and i made a few. all of those are overwhelmed by, the main things, the athletes carry out. >> reporter: the prime minister was asked if romney apologized at ten downing street. the prime minister felt a volt of confidence from mitt romney. the story traveled all the way back to salt lake city. the spokesman for the mayor there, saying of the prime minister in brit thivenain. happy to have him. happy to send a map that he doesn't run into trouble check for the middle of nowhere. david muir, abc news. >> the white house is pushing better educational opportunities for african-american students. the president signed an initiative aimed at ensuring students receive a complete and competitive education. >>> 300,000 people lost power in the ohio valley and
